I worked at First Busey

Pros

There is a very flat organization structure and its a small division for wealth management. This means that you get a lot of responsibilities right away.

Cons

Informal structure means that you do not have a defined assignment at times nor specific performance measures. Work is sometimes very meaningless and arbitrary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be performance appraisals and more set work. There is no information on daily responsibilities or the impact of work done.

    Pros

    Mid-managers are nice and friendly. Pay is average. There is a room for upward movement. Plus, they offer a lot of training to make sure that you can deliver what Busey asks you to do.

    Cons

    Working could be intimidating. Mid management, unlike mid-managers, focus on being very aggressive to their customer, which brings some of pressure to their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people. Tellers were constantly asked to do more than what was necessary.
